Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Smoke & soot removal

This home had a fire in the basement. Many areas of the home were damaged by smoke and soot. These photos show a steam room that was in the basement. Although the room is all painted concrete block, smoke and soot are still difficult to remove just like if the wall were painted drywall. You can see where a spot test was completed on one of the blocks. Spot testing is done by hand initially to see how much debris can be removed and to help determine the method we will use to clean the area. It seems fitting that our SERVPRO crew cleaned this with steam, and the results are amazing.
